The fourth-largest oil exporter in the world is vulnerable to the oil price slump. Home prices continue with an uninterrupted rise and the population has been voraciously consuming debt. At the same time, the strengthening US recovery and weaker loonie (cdn dollar) are working together to build stronger demand for Canadian exports.
